The Last Gasp of The New Republic’s “Man in Iraq”

The New Republic’s fabulist, Scott Thomas Beauchamp, is back like a bad case of acid reflux thanks to Spencer Ackerman, a ‘reporter’ on a tabloid website called Radar Online. It’s a self-described magazine chock full of ‘Pop, Politics, Scandal, and Style’.

How catchy.

Ackerman, who was fired by The New Republic, listens with fawning, rapt attention, as Beauchamp and his ex-TNR employee wife Elspeth Reeve whine, wail, bitch, and rehash all the ridiculous bullshit they produced while writing ‘dispatches’ for TNR’s “Shock Troops” articles.

As an added bonus, the toadying Ackerman lends his 2 cents:

“Among neoconservative war apologists and self-anointed superpatriots, discrediting the story became a crusade: Beauchamp must be proven a liar, and TNR must be humiliated”

Beauchamp slandered, libeled, and denigrated his fellow Soldiers in a national publication, with fabricated horseshit masquerading as ‘war stories’. Members of his unit, including the ones he tried to drag into his ‘memoirs’, have flatly denied his statements.

His wild-assed stories have been debunked repeatedly by his chain of command, as well as other Soldiers, both active duty and retired.

He brought shame on himself and undue stress that his unit did not need. He’s a narcissistic, delusional, problem child. Why has this little turd not been kicked out of the Army? The longer he stays, the more of a liability he becomes.

  1. I left the following ‘messages’ on his site:

    Dear Jihadist in arms,

    I saw your comments to the infidel on the Foxhole, and I am pleased (allah be praised!) that you have joined my holy war against the American crusaders. Please let me know when you want to volunteer to stap on a bomb, wade into some civilians, and blow up them (and yourself) for the ‘Religion of Peace’. The World Trade Center and the Pentagon were just the beginning. My minions of followers have shed much blood for allah, and we are far from finished. Remember Mohammad’s words:

    Koran VIII.39-42: Say to the Infidels: if they desist from their unbelief, what is now past shall be forgiven; but if they return to it, they have already before them the doom of the ancients! Fight then against them till strife be at an end, and the religion be all of it God’s.

    4.56: (As for) those who disbelieve in Our communications, We shall make them enter fire; so oft as their skins are thoroughly burned, We will change them for other skins, that they may taste the chastisement; surely Allah is Mighty, Wise.

    5.51: O you who believe! Do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.

    And don’t forget to treat your mother and sisters as Mohammad commands:

    4.34: Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has given the one more (strength) than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in (the husband’s) absence what Allah would have them guard. As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (Next), refuse to share their beds, (And last) beat them (lightly); but if they return to obedience, seek not against them Means (of annoyance): For Allah is Most High, great (above you all)”

    And as CAIR Chairman Omar M.
    Ahmad told a crowd of faithful (allah be praised) California Muslims in July 1998,

    “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran . . . should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth.”

    With your help it will be so.

    Yours in Islamofascism,

    Osama

    Oh and by the way my brother, I am soooooooooo glad you’re such a ‘manly’ man. If you ever make it over here to join in our jihad, you can use one of our four legged, wool-covered ‘girls’ for a ‘manly’ tryst. Tell ’em Osama sent you.

    I don’t think ‘Jesus’ is up to either task…..

    By the way, I don’t think ‘juniorjesus waterwalker’ read the article as closely as he should. Here’s what he missed:

    After taking small-arms fire, the patrol chased some men into a building, arresting them and finding several automatic weapons, grenades and a sniper rifle, they said. On the way to their combat outpost, Sergeant Hatley’s convoy was informed by Army superiors that the evidence to detain the Iraqis was insufficient, Sergeant Leahy said in his statement. The unit was told to release the men, according to the statement.

    Link to post containing above excerpt: http://sfcmac.wordpress.com/2008/08/28/new-york-times-us-soldiers-executed-prisoners/

    They tracked down the cocksuckers and found their weapons, but it’s insufficient. Right.

    JC apparently isn’t too informed about proper Army rank. Beauchamp is a SPC (Specialist E4) not a SFC (Sergeant First Class E7).

  2. This is the post that ‘Jesus’ originally sent:

    Like you, I was angered when I read SFC Beauchamp’s blog posts at TNR. His tales of running over dogs and playing with children’s skulls directly threatened our moral authority as occupiers. Had these charges gone unanswered, America’s internal enemies would have used them to question the morality of the invasion itself.

    I thank God you stepped into the breach and contacted Beauchamp’s
    First Sergeant John E. Hatley. His response, in which he denied the charges, attacked Beauchamp, and praised his unit certainly helped to discredit the reports.

    Now it’s time for us to help 1SG Hatley.

    As you are no doubt aware, he and three subbordibates are now under arrest for executing civillians in Iraq. A conviction would undermine all the good work you and he did to demonize Beuchamp (sic) and undermine his reporting.

    We can’t allow that to happen. We have to push back by changing public attitudes about the summary execution of civillians. We have to turn it into a patriotic act so that soldiers like Hatley recieve public aclaim when they grab a random civillian, handcuff and blindfold her, force her to kneel on the ground, and then shoot her in the head.

    We cannot fail. Our nation’s very existence depends on our success. You know what’s at stake. You stated it so eloquently in your email to Hatley:

    The United States Army is what stands between freedom and Sharia Law, and you should be very proud of what you’re doing. You’re helping to rid the world of Islamofacsists who want to transform the entire planet into a Caliphate.

    “[H]elping to rid the world,” indeed.

    Heterosexually yours in a chaste and biblically appropriate kind of way,

    Gen. JC Christian, patriot

  3. Aw, look who got his diaper in a wad:

    Osama bin Cherl,

    I understand why you’d delete my comment. It exposed both you for what you are. That has to hurt.

    I don’t delete comments like yours for the same reason. It’s always entertaining to see winger insanity in its rawest form.

    Jesustapdancinchrist:
    I actually thought I would spare most of my readers from your particular brand of asshattery, but, since you’re so insistant on getting another forum for your mental illness, I’ll go ahead and post it.
    SFC MAC
